Gangaputra community as Backward Classes in Hyderabad and Secunderabad 8


Government of Andhra Pradesh with G.O.Ms.No. 19 Date: 13-09-2013 have approved the list of Backward Classes (other than Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes) and declared that the Castes and Communities specified in Annexure-I to the said order are socially and educationally backward classes. The Caste “Gangaputra” has been included as Backward Classes at Sl.No.1 under Group ‘A’ of the existing list of Backward Classes in Annexure-I to the said order.

President, Jalkhatriya Samaja Gangaputra, Hyderabad in his representation has stated that the Revenue authorities are not issuing Backward Class Caste Certificate under Sl.No.1, Group ‘A’ Sub Caste “Gangaputra” for their community people, for the reason that they are Hindi speaking. He has further stated that they are residing in Hyderabad since more than 100 years and their main occupation is fishing and many people depend for their livelihood on daily wages and they are economically and socially backward class people. He has, therefore, requested to issue necessary instructions to the concerned authorities to issue Backward Class Caste Certificate to Hindi speaking people, who claim to belong to the Sub-Caste “Gangaputra”, which is placed under Group ‘A’.

The Government, after careful examination of the matter, hereby direct to issue Backward Class Caste Certificate to Hindi speaking people of Gangaputra community persons of Twin Cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad only under “Group-A”, Sl.No.1, Sub- Caste “Gangaputra” Community following due procedure as contemplated in Community Certificate Act 1993, as is being followed for all other Backward Classes
